Dug out some old vises
« on: May 13, 2011, 06:39:38 AM »
Looking for a project for later this Spring or Summer, I dug out these old vises.
Reed #105 with a repaired shaft
Parker 88 1/2
Unmarked post vise I got from my great uncle's old tools

Wish I could just "dig out" tools. LOL

I dont know why but that post vise really jumps out at me.
And I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

Looks like you have some Great old stock to work with! I'm parcel to the old Post Vice Myself! Are you going to weld an ear mount on the first one shown yourself? I used a nickel rod on my Windmill case, along with pre-heating with a torch, and a whole bunch of hammer peining, and it worked out Great.

Good Luck,

Wayne

I'm no great shakes at welding, and don't think the broken mount will ever bother me, so it will stay as is. I will try to redo the jaws. The big Parker needs more than I am willing or capable of doing to it. It will have its uses though.

I like the stile of the Parker...
If all else fails use a bigger hammer…

 Me three!!!
  That Parker is a machinist/tinsmith model!  Nice tall jaws with lots of clearance.
  Not really made to hammer a 1 1/2" diameter shaft with a 4 pound hammer on.
  But more precision work!
  Really really nice, and hard to find.
   yours Scott
